devil toenail?

Ok, so last night I was doing research on Gryphaea (oyster-like shell fish from the Jurassic period) and I was having some troubles. A few of my sources told me how, long ago when Gryphaea was first discovered, it was nicknamed the "devil's toenail". But they also told me that this was an odd nickname because the devil is usually pictured with hooves.
